Tameside South District trip to RAF Museum

16 December 2013

 

RAF Museum - Cosford

5th Hyde Beavers, Cubs and Scouts joined others from all over Tameside South Scout District as part of a trip to RAF Cosford.

Beavers and Cubs achieved their Air Activities Badge, whilst the Scouts gained their Air Researcher Activity Badge. A great day was had by all – setting off in three coaches, 5th Hyde were thrilled to fill one of them.

The Royal Air Force Museum is Britain’s only national museum dedicated wholly to aviation. With a world-class aircraft collection, integrated with special exhibitions, films, interactives, artwork, engines, missiles, photographs, uniforms, medals and research and education facilities, the Museum takes an innovative approach while keeping with tradition. While offering an insight into aviation technology, it focuses on the people who made it possible – from daredevil early aviators, through wartime heroes, to the thousands of Service men and women whose contribution shaped the world we live in today. The
museum at Cosford, is acknowledged as one of the leading public attractions in the Midlands and displays over 70 aircraft.
